Two weeks ago I received carrots, sweet potatoes, dried kidney beans, garlic, collards, daikon, spinach and turnips.
The Carrots and Spinach were used in a tortellini soup. The kids loved it, even though they skirted around the carrots and spinach, fishing out the tortellinis.
I roasted the garlic in a bit of olive oil and squeezed it into homemade hummus.
The daikon was added to pickled with carrots and used as a side dish for lunches.
I used the dried kidney beans also in a Roadhouse Chili recipe from the Soupbox cookbook. I didn’t realized how much dried bean expanded. What a nutritious and cheap way to eat! I still have 1/2 the container.
Turnips were used in yet another soup (I’m cooking my way through the entire Soupbox cookbook!). I threw them in with next week’s delivery…
Leeks, Red Pepper, Red Potato, Snap Peas, Artichoke, and Root Vegetable Soup Mix.
I used the root vegetable mix along with one leek, the red potatoes, and the turnips from last week to make a great soup that everyone can eat. The veggies were all diced and soft so the babies could eat them. The older boys liked theirs pureed with a hunk of bread.
I plan on steaming the artichoke and dipping in butter one night. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
As for the snap peas they make a great snack or lunch time side.
The last leek and red pepper are either going into a quiche of I’m going to make savory and sweet crepes one night for dinner.Pin It
